ACT College Planning Guide: A Presentation for Students and Parents
ACT, Inc.
The materials in this College Planning Guide support a 40-50 minute general college planning presentation. It is most effective when delivered to high school juniors (and their parents) in the spring. It can also be used in the fall with seniors or with sophomores and their parents who desire an overview of the college planning process. The presentation and handouts have been utilized successfully in the classroom, at special meetings for college-bound students and/or their parents, at college day/night programs, at PTA and other school-related meetings, and at youth group and civic organization meetings. The guide consists of: (1) guidelines for making meetings a success; (2) suggested points of emphasis for planning a presentation; and (3) handouts to be duplicated and used with a PowerPoint presentation available online. (Contains 1 figure.)
